THE STORY: In the peaceful backcountry around Cannes, somewhere between the mountains and the sea, Céline Mastrorelli (who used to work in French heritage) took over a former 18th-century inn and turned it into a B&B. She renovated the entire place herself, and the cheeky stone building now boasts olive green shutters, an immense living room bathed in natural light, where you can lounge in peace, a kitchen that’ll put you in the mood to start cooking (a Smeg stove, silver cutlery), and a dining room that gives out onto a heavenly little garden strewn with olive trees, lavender and bougainvillea. What will you find upstairs? Four intimate and sunny bedrooms, with tomette tile floors, exposed wooden beams, whitewashed walls and linen sheets, where you can drift off to a midsummer’s night dream… And for good reason, now that the weather is getting nice, which means that the outdoor space is in full bloom: deck chairs, a shady arbor, a long and narrow swimming pool, a plancha grill, a wood-burning barbecue… Double rooms starting at €130 a night.
BREAKFAST: Included, with coffee or tea, freshly squeezed orange juice, freshly baked bread, homemade jam and granola, viennoiseries, fruits, a cake of the day, local cheeses, scrambled eggs with pancetta…
TOILETRIES: Soap, shampoo and body wash from the Micallef perfumery that was specially created for the B&B.
LITTLE LUXURY: The questionnaire sent out to guests prior to their arrival, which ensures a customizable stay: linen or cotton sheets? Featherdown or memory foam cushions? Breakfast with or without dairy products? It’s all entirely up to you!
